Jobs That Lead to Repetitive Stress Injuries

Jobs That Lead to Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries occur from repeated movements, and some jobs have a higher risk of these types of injuries than others. If your job involves repetitive movements, you may find that you begin to develop aches and pains. Because this can progress to a chronic problem, don’t wait to see a professional for evaluation and treatment.  

Orthopedic regenerative medicine is an innovative area that focuses on using natural remedies to accelerate and promote tissue healing. Orthopedic regenerative medicine harnesses your body’s own natural ability to heal itself, to repair and replace damaged tissue in joints, bones, tendons, cartilage, and muscle.

Here at Dr. Stem Cell, our board-certified orthopedic surgeon Bruce Fishman, MD, provides innovative regenerative orthopedic care to treat pain caused by a broad range of orthopedic ailments. Treatment can help ease pain in your back, shoulders, hips, elbows, knees, wrists, and feet. 

If your job carries the risk of repetitive stress injuries, here’s how treatment with regenerative therapies can help.

Understanding repetitive stress injuries

When you perform the same movements repeatedly with the same muscle groups, injury can occur. Also known as repetitive strain injury, this can happen due to particular job tasks such as typing or repeating the same motion with a single tool. Examples of repetitive stress injuries include:

Certain occupations can lead to repetitive stress injuries that require treatment. If you have a combination of the following symptoms, you may have a repetitive strain injury:

Symptoms may appear immediately before or after you do a specific action or maintain a specific position. However, the longer you wait to seek treatment while you keep doing the same job, the more severe your symptoms can become. 

Jobs that often lead to repetitive stress injuries

A broad range of occupations involve repetitive movement. Here are some of them:

Orthopedic care can turn things around for the better for these and other workers in occupations where repetitive stress injuries are common.

How regenerative medicine relieves orthopedic pain

Regenerative treatments such as stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy use substances from your own bone marrow or blood to promote healing. PRP therapy involves creating a concentrated source of platelets from your blood and injecting them into the damaged area to aid and accelerate healing. Treatment reduces inflammation and eases pain. 

Stem cell therapy involves injecting stem cells into damaged tissues. These unique cells can change into other types of cells, such as cartilage. When injected into painful joints, for example, stem cell therapy can help to generate new cartilage and heal damaged joints. 

Regenerative therapy addresses the root of your pain to bring you symptom relief so you can do more of the things you enjoy. To learn more about the benefits of regenerative medicine for managing orthopedic pain, book an appointment online or over the phone with Dr. Fishman today.
